Event description
Due to recent events and the UN Decade of People of African descent we explore the hidden Black history in the Clapham Common area

About this event

Due to worldwide protests and the United Nations International Decade of People of African Descent, we repeat our special walk around Clapham Common to expose the African resistance, presence and history in the area. There are also many homes and establishments literally built from the profits of slavery. This walk features:

  • The African Academy, an all black school in the 1800's
  • Black Freedom fighters and the Sierra Leone connection
  • African aristocracy in 1800's London
  • Jamaican Maroons and African-Canadians
  • How enslaved Africans helped poor English people
  • Barclays, Hibbert and other estates built with West Indian money and more

This is a physical walk in real life in the outdoors. Exact meet point will be sent after booking .
